    what are you talking about? a screen in a glass pipe is about as necessary as wearing socks with sandals. it can be done, and some people like it, but its not at all necessary.

    a glass pipe should taper inside the bowl and come to a small opening. it shouldnt poop out on you unless you're sucking as if you're trying to get a diamond out of there or something.....i'll use a screen in my bubbler because the stem leading into the water is narrow enough that if i didnt it would get clogged often. but i don't know ANYBODY who regularly uses screens in their spoons, although occasionally you'll do that if there is a peice chipped out near the bottom of the bowl making the opening too big, or if they just feel like it. yeah, you can do it. but once its really resinated it can get pretty hard to remove without damaging the glass. part of the reasoning behind smoking out of glass is that it generally will taste better than a metal pipe. so if you're going for glass, why put a metal screen in there? they're designed to not require a screen.

    also, the best tasting (but harshest on the throat) smoke generally comes out of a brand new, clean glass pipe. if it tastes bad, you should wash it really well.

    I always wondered about that glass stuff and the little hole. I asked a similar question about it and the friendly people here told me what's up. Little hole is fine for toking, just don't smoke finely busted up shake in it. I'd avoid sucking too hard so you don't get ash. Inhale just enough to get the smoke and not disturb the ash sitting precariously on the edge of the hole. lol

    yo you want a screen that bad get a small piece of glass [make shure it cant slide threw ]and smoke away might be a good idea to soften down the edges a bit not hard at all this works well as a screen in glass but i agree ya dont really need one

    no need for the hostility man.

    They make glass screens for glass bowls. I've used metal screens, but I prefer no screen in my spoon. You can pretty much tell when there's only a hit or so left in the bowl and just hit it carefully or tap it out.
  16. what the hell?? I don't know anyone who doesn't use a screen in their spoons. I wouldn't smoke out of one if it didn't have one, either. Well, I take that back. Yes, I would, but I would most definitely complain. I hate having the shit get into my mouth, and if you cut the screen just right, it will fit perfectly into the bowl, and not be so unstable. you just gotta shape it right. Sometimes, it depends on the spoon pipe. Ive seen ones with tiny, tiny holes in the bottom of the bowl, and then, no, I wouldn't use a screen, but mine has a pretty big hole, and even when I barely suck in, pot particles get all over my tongue, and I hate that. The worst I've seen was someone putting a pebble from the street in their bowl to stop shake from getting sucked into his mouth, but I've never done that personally. who are you to say that someone is stupid for using a screen?? To me, not using a screen is pretty retarded, but if you like wasting smokeable pot, then so be it. I don't even realize I'm using a screen, mine never gets in the way or anything, and I dont get shake all in my mouth. As far as the bad taste, after buying a new pipe, I would wash it first, cuz sometimes from headshops, they have this nasty cleaning shit still on the pipes. Like lysol spray that just stayed there. It doesn't happen all the time, but just to be safe I always wash em...

    if you need a screen for a glass spoon you cant pack

    its an art just as much as rolling
    you gotta overstuff make a nice mound the compress with your lighter
    then you wont need a screen.

    seriously, its not at all necessary. i dont see why you'd need one unless you lack the ability to even pack the bowl. it doesnt even have to be full, you just have to pack it down. i pretty much NEVER have anything get in my mouth. its much more likely to be a problem with blunts and american style joints.

    There's a lotta hosility in this thread.

    I have never even used a screen. If the hole is too big, I just put a little nug at the bottom, and then pack as normal.

    I haven't ever even seen a screen. :p

    if your glass pipe needs a screen so it wont shit in your mouth than you bowl sucks thats all there is to it. and wuts wrong with american style joints, ive never had one if my j's shit in my mouth cuz i roll up a piece of sturdy paper (such as a piece of a ciggarette box) and stick it in the back.
